XXXII Doctor Chnnning recuperated rapidly nnd Sally found ilin amusing nnd helpful. So mnny patients, especially men, became testy and difficult as they improved. Not sd the patient in 327. Sally wrote letters for him on the jorlablo machine his sister brought Lo the hospital nnd even read the proof of several chapters of his new book. Me still continued to send most of his floral offerings to his neighbor across the hall, and Sally brought back to him reports of her gratitude and her progress. Miss Newell was now sitting up for a few minutes each day. She proved to be an attractive, middle- aged woman —a former high school teacher with a delightful voice. She used to sing, very softly, quaint little tunes that entranced written prim little notes of thanks her nurses and Sally. She had to Doctor Charming upon receipt of his flowers, - and the doctor urged his sister to slop in and visit her. Much against her will, Miss Kate did so and the two became friends. The first day Doctor Channing was able to use a wheel chair, he was a happy man. It was late May and tlic weather delightful with doors and windows wide. Sally steered the chair into the corridor and pointed it toward the elevator intending to go on the roof. Doctor Channing was eager to see the spot which the staff praised so cx- ti-avganlly and then, too, he had become bored being confined to his room. Linton's stood on a hill —(he highest spot in town —and from the roof a panorama of great beauty spread out— the town itself in its fertile valley surrounded by lakes forests, winding roads and broad fields beyond which hills piled to the edge of the sky. But as they came out of room 327 into the corridor, the doctor's keen blue eyes encountered the soft brown gaze of his neighbor across the hall and he bowed ceremoniously and waved his good right arm in friendly salute. Sally paused. "Want to stop a minute, Doctor?" she asked. "She's sweet and almost as clever as you are." She kept the chair moving until it was well inside the door. "Miss Newell, this is my favorite patient, Doctor Channing. You two should know each other—you are both so —well wonderful!" Niss Ncwell's eyes twinkled for a moment. "I have enjoyed your flowers, Doctor Channing," she said. "Your sister explained your dislike of flowers in a bedroom. I have no quarrel with that because it has made my stay here .much pleasanlcr. I am glad you are getting along so well. I suppose you will be going home soon?" "I doubt it," the doctor told her firmly. "I like it here. I have the best nurse in the establishment — yes, I have— no argument about that. And I hope you don't mind young lady," to Kitty Howard who was Miss Newoll's devoted attendant. Kilty laughed and wrinkled her pert little nose at him. "I don't mind at all, Doctor Channing," she told him. "Because you sec, its just a matter of opinion." "Kitty is wonderful," Miss Newell pronounced. "At that, I think we are both very fortunate, Doctor Channing. Won't you have a cup of my tea— both of you? I always like a cup of tea about four each afternoon. My English ancestry cropping out." They drank their tea and nibbled at the small, sweet cakes Kilty passed and it wasn't until Sally heard the startled voice of Mrs. Cantwell from the door of 327 that the little parly broke up. Doctor Channing grew red nnd flustered and Sally hushed him gently and closed the door into Ihe hall. Kitly giggled and Miss Newell smiled, They heard Ihe quick tapping of Mrs. Cantwell's high heels as she hurried away down the corridor and Sally whispered: "Want to risk the roof, Doctor? Or shall we stay here? I imagine she will rouse the hospilal fearing you have been kidnapped." "Will she be allowed on the roof?" he asked and Sally saw that he was really concerned. She was amused. To her it all seemed very silly. "I don't imagine it would make much difference to her whether she is allowed up there or not. If she wanted to go to Ihe roo> she would just go there. Anyway, I think you have been up long enough. I'll take you back to your room and settle you in bed." "It's your turn to come across the hall next time, Miss Newell," the doctor said as Sally wheeled him out. "Make it soon — I ge,t lonesome." Doctor Channing was barely back in bed when Ihcy heard people approaching. It sounded like an army and Sally looked up from Ihe fresh sheel of paper she had inserted into the fvnp- wrilcr to see nol only Mrs. Cantwell, but the Chief, himself, with Miss Sunderlin, Doctor Willoughby and the senior interne who was grinning broadly. Miss Kate Channing followed a few paces behind. She came into the room, her face showing surprise and something like bewilderment as she watched Mrs. Cantwell trying to explain her distress at finding Doctor Channing's'room empty. "I'm sure of it," she kept saying. "I couldn't have been mistaken. It was this room, I tell you, and no one was here— it was completely empty." (To Be Continued) o U. S.

MARTIN Associated Press Farm Reporter Washinglon, July 9 —(/P)—Unless price controls over meat are re- eslablished, the government may suspend its famine relief buying until fall when livestock marketings normally are greater. This possibility was disclosed today by an aide of Secretary of Agriculture .Clinton P. Anderson who said Ihe administration does not want to bid against Arherican consumers. The official said privately the government feared such buying would boost meat prices far above presenl levels. Before OPA expired July, 1 Ihe government bought an average of more than 25,000,000 pounds of meal weekly during Ihe first half of 1946 lo help fill a foreign com- milmenl of about 1,500,000,000 pounds for the full year. • Naughty Nanncrtc 9 House Tricks Chas, A.

Haynes Co, SECOND and MAIN Florida Visit Unhealthy forArkansan Miami, Fla., July 9 ~(fP>— A 200-pound Arkansas woman who arrived here yesterday to meet a man, only lo run smnck into his irate wife instead, was cnroutc back to her home in Jtidsonia, Ark., today. Lieut. C. 0. Huttoc, of the Miami detective bureau, told this story of the affair: Back in 1941-42, the Arkansas woman then living in Miami fell in love with a Miamian little more lhan half her size, who claimed he was not married. Afler she moved to Arkansas, they corresponded and recently he invited her to return to Miami. She wired him that she would arrive t>y bus yesterday afternoon, bul when the telegram was delivered at his home, his wife opened it. And when the woman stepped off the bus, she was greeted wilh fisls instead of affection. Patrolman Archie Carver, on duty nearby, broke up the Hght and turned the two women over to Hulloe. Atlcr hearing Iheir slories, Hutloe released the wife wilh the promise that she would return to police headquarters with her husband. • Less than two hours later, she was back with the little man, who admitled writing vhc woman lo come to Miami and and said he sent her money for Ihe I rip. He agred lo give her 325 for her return trip to Arkansas. A detcclive escorted the woman to Ihe bus slation. The wife escorted her husband home. ' Pog« Ttiftl DOROTHY DIX and Collece It is gratifying lo learn lhat many of our colleges are including the study of marriage in Iheir curriculums. Suiely this fills a long felt want, for the one Ihing th&l boys and girls need lo know more ®- Ihan anything else is how to pick I wifp out their males and live wilh Ihem in reasonable peace ever afterwards. wife's slatus was only lhat of an unpaid servant; if he has seen her knocked about, sworn at, her pleasure and her happiness never considered, the chances are that he will make a doormat of his own Heretofore this vilal branch of education has been entirely neglected. Nobody has Ihoughl il worth while lo leach youngslers even the A.B.C.s of matrimony, yet it is more important for every husband to be able to figure out what his wife is going to do next than it is for him to be a shark in higher mathematics, and far, far more profitable to a wife lo speak her husband's language lhan il is Greek or Latin. Surely many a domestic tragedy will be avoided when adolescent gii Is and boys are taughl lo lake Iheir temperatures and diagnose their symptoms and realize that the palpitations from which they are suffering are nol caused by Iho grand passion bul indigeslion, and lhal Ihe remedy for it is bicarbonate and not marriage. And, wilhoul doubl, Ihe grealesl accomplishment lhal any human being can eyer learn is how to handle Ihe opposile sex withoul friction. Generally it takes about three divorces to do this. And so, if it can be taught in school, it will do more than any other one thing to promote peace. HOME LIFE IS BEST TEACHER But when all is said and done, Ihe knowledge of how to be a good husband or wife is home work and it is whal children learn al Iheir parents' knees that sets the pattern of their behavior. The teachings of a learned psychologist may modify them, but, 99 times out of a hundred, by the time the honeymoon has waned the bridal couple are dealing with each other according to the family formula. If a boy has always seen' his father treat his mother as if she. were still a lady love; if Dad has been gentle and kind and considerate of Mother, it is dollars lo doughnuls that he will handle his own wife that way. But if he has grown up in a family where the And if a girl has a mother who is a hcnpecker and a nagger and who regards her husband as no thing bul a slave lo earn money for her; if her molhcr is a lazy, slovenly housekeeper who feeds her family on food lhal would kill an ostrich, Ihe belling is lhat she will run true to form and make just the kind of wife lhat Mother does. Of course, there are exceptions to every rule, and this is Irue of marriage as of everylhing else. For, while boys and girls do almost always make the kind of husbands and wives lhal Iheir parents are, there are cases in which they re- voll against the family pattern. Many a man is over-tender to his wife because his father was so harsh lo his mother. Many a wife spoils her husband to death because she was always so sorry for her poor, downtrodden father. Undoubtedly teaching youngslers in college the rudiments of how to select their mates and how {o make marriage the blessed estate it should be will be provocative of much good and save many, a divorce and broken-up home. But I still advise youngsters who are contemplaling matrimony to take a post-graduate course by givirig the home life of their intendeds the once-over before they sign up oh the doited line. (Bell Syndicate, lnc.7 BARE RESULTS Aurora, 111., July 9 — W)— Mrs. Gcraldine Johnson had finished washing three newly acquired pairs of nylons when she heard:a rumor there was steak at her favorite butcher shop. She hung the nylons out in the yard and went to the shop— but the butcher's counters were bare. When she returned home she found her clothesline equally bare —a thief had stolen her nylons!
